The course is launching soon

Artificial intelligence (AI) is an exciting and highly debated area of technology that holds great potential in all sectors of the economy. Because of this, modern business leaders across industries need to recognise the scope of its impact, and learn how to adapt and implement strategies to benefit from it.*

The Oxford Artificial Intelligence Programme from Saïd Business School, University of Oxford aims to provide participants with a sound understanding of the mechanics behind AI technology and how it functions, as well as its potential and limitations.

This programme provides participants with empirical research from the wider University of Oxford, as well as real-life case studies surrounding AI implementation, in order to help them think critically about its ethical, legal, and societal implications.

Participants will also gain the insight to make an informed business case for AI implementation to solve a specific problem within their organisation or sector.

PROFESSOR MATTHIAS HOLWEG

American Standard Companies Professor of Operations Management

Saïd Business School, University of Oxford

Matthias is an industrial engineer by training and he is interested in how organisations generate and sustain process improvement practices. His research focuses on the evolution and adaption of process improvement methodologies as they are being applied across manufacturing, service, office and public sector contexts. His award-winning papers on the genealogy of lean production and the evolution of lean thinking philosophy are amongst the most widely cited works in the field. Together with John Bicheno, he is also co-author of 'The Lean Toolbox', a practitioner guide to lean transformation that has sold more than 100,000 copies across five editions and is available in English, Danish, Swedish and Chinese.

More recently, Matthias has started working on digital operations, and in particular the economics of additive manufacturing (3D printing), in order to determine how to use this set of new technologies to generate competitive advantage. He is particularly interested in identifying the role that digital manufacturing will play in supporting process improvement, reshaping product offerings, and changing the nature of competition. He also leads the Digitally Empowered Enterprise Lab at Saïd Business School, which brings together the many strands of research within the School related to the digital transformation.

“AI is a fascinating technology that is entering every aspect of our work and daily lives. It improves existing products and processes, and also fosters disruptive innovation. We need to embrace it, while also defining its legal and ethical boundaries within our organisations, and society as a whole.“ - Professor Matthias Holweg, Programme Convenor
